My GrGrGrandmother was
Mary Felderman.
b. Jan 11, 1844 (in Germany I think)
d. April 9, 1929 (buried in Osborne,
Ks.)

My Grandmother Esther Zimmerman
Seidel grew up on a farm next
door to Mary and she tole me
stories about her Grandmother.
One of my favorite :Grandmother
hated being indoors, she grew
up on a farm in Germany and loved
be out. She never learned
"fine" sewing and she hired a
neighbor lady to teach this
"stitchery" to her only child,
my GR Grandmother Elizabeth
Koenemann Zimmerman."

Most of my Felderman relatives were at one time and most (I think are buried in Osborne)
My Father had a coousin with the Zimmerman name and I remember when I went to Osborne to bury my Grandmother Mabel Almira Geise, the Zimmermans hosted the after funeral gathering. could you please help me to figure just where your Mary Felderman figures in my line? I feel positive feelings that you and I are related. Feel free to e-mail me at grannygrissam@aol.com
Maybe we can exchange information?
Thanks in advance, JUDY GEISE GRISSAM

Yes, my father remembers the
Geise name. He thinks his mother
Elise Esther Zimmerman (dau of
Walter M Zimmerman) had a good
friend named Maude. He is not
sure of Maude's last name.
He also remembers thinking that there
were a lot of Geise family members and
he thought of them as cousins. He
does not remember how, though.
Thanks so much for writing, I hope
we can sort out the Felderman
connection.

Donna: I remember being in the Zimmerman home in Osborne. It was a modest little home that had the living room, dining room and kitchen all on the left side of the house and there was a little feeding station for the birds in the kitchen. I watched the cardinals in that little station and was so impressed at the time that I sort of adopted the cardinal as my favorite bird. I do not remember for sure the names of the Z's there but Esther sort of rings a bell. Daddy often spoke of them as his cousins. It seems
to me that they lived sort of on the back side of the courthouse and not too far from the high school where my Mom and Daddy went.
I think I also heard my Grandmother McKenna speak of the Zimm's too. Her name was Julia and was the daughter (adopted) of Maggie Becker who had a farm in Bloom township which I understand later became part of Osborne. Some of the other lifelong residents that your father may know were:
Buddie and Janice Smith, Billie and James Yunk, my mother Margaret McKenna Geise, June and Don Jackson (who moved after marrying), Flo and Melvin Robinson (who also moved after marrying, Jennie Biesner, Laura Sackoff. My GGrandfather McKenna donated the land on which now stands the newer Catholic Church. I know the old one was torn down sometime before 1976. Run this list of folks to your father and see if he remembers any of them. Oh, also ask if he remembers Fred Slentz. JUDY
